[XeTeX] controlling space above an inline table

Hi all,

I'm kind of running out of ideas... I have what amounts to an inline 
table (using tabular environment) in order to effect phonetic guide text 
for CJK text in a document, which works quite well (thanks to Will, 
Werner and Heiko back in 2008) except that it suffers from one problem 
that I hadn't noticed back then: there appears to be way too much 
vertical space, either because of the mbox command or tabular 
environment, that I can't seem to get rid of.

The attached pdf should highlight the problem: there is too much space 
between a line that has text with phonetic guide text, and previous 
lines. I tried some negative valued \vspace commands in strategic 
locations, but couldn't solve it that way, so if a \setlength for some 
mbox or tabular attribute is required... I have no idea which one. I 
think I tried every possible attribute that applies to boxes and tables 
at this point, but to no avail.

Can anyone help?
